These folks have this concept down right. Order up front and then go back in one of the casual eating areas and your food is brought out to you. Service was very quick and pleasant. The fried chicken was crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. Cole slaw was not my favorite and fries were ok. Really love... More

I visit Zesto near everytime I visit folks in Cayce. The food and service is excellent, EVERYTIME!!! Was told that when I was there this past weekend that "George" was also there. Would you please build or put a Zesto in Greenwood, SC? We have a few chicken places and they are sad, compared to Zesto. I'm so impressed with... More

Love the burgers, love the chicken- you just can't beat a visit to Zesto. One of my favorite places to take my family for lunch or dinner. Locally owned and operated, this place is a staple in West Columbia.

I had been to Zesto's one day for an ice cream cone - but felt the need to return and try the fried chicken one day for lunch! I was not disappointed! I always get white meat chicken, even though it can tend to be on the dry side, NOT the case here. The batter was light and crispy and... More

Love, love, love the fried chicken baskets!! Heard that the West Columbia location is the best, haven't tried other locations. Place was packed but 2 dozen people working behind the counter and we had our food in 10 mins.

Finally gave Zesto a try after hearing everyone rave about it. I guess I should have ordered chicken. I had a cheeseburger basket and it was ok. Nothing great. Nothing special. I didn't like the slaw. The woman who took our order was not friendly. Yes, it was very busy, but friendly service would have been nice. Sweet tea was... More

If you love fried chicken, and especially big, fat fried wings, you cannot find any better fried chicken than Zesto's. Don't be fooled, the one in West Columbia/Triangle City is the ONLY real Zesto.
